Work commences on the Bald Hills Road Interchange
Sunday, 28 June 2015
Mark Goldsworthy MP was pleased to join with Hon Jamie Briggs MP,
Federal Assistant Minister and Member for Mayo and Mayor Ann Ferguson, District
Council of Mt Barker on Sunday 28 June 2015 for a sod-turning event to mark the
commencement of the $27 million Bald Hills Road interchange project.
This project is vital to serve the infrastructure needs of not
only the tri-town District of Mt Barker, Littlehampton and Nairne, but the
broader Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu regions given the growth that is occurring.
Works on the new freeway interchange, including on and off ramps
and a new roundabout at the junction of Old Princes Highway and Bald Hills Road,
are expected to be completed by mid-2016.
Congestion at the Adelaide Road interchange is expected to reduce
as many drivers opt to use the new interchange.
